Flexbox: New Way of Flexibility. TechTalk
Have you ever used Flexbox in web development? It’s a new efficient module providing the more flexible way to layout, work with items in the container, align them and create space between them, even when the sizes of items are unknown.
As for WEB4PRO, we are quite impressed by the presentation of our professional frontend developer and already successfully use Flexbox. Last week we had a TechTalk, where everyone found out all the advantages of Flexbox. And today we are here to share our experience with you. Here is how it was:
It’s safe to say that Flexbox is really useful technology. It allows us to use the space inside the container the more efficient: adjust the width, height, and the order of items to fill the available space. It’s quite helpful for developing complex and large applications. Flexbox works very well when it comes to flexing, the orientation changing, and resizing.
If talk about the browsers which support the Flexbox, here are the results of research:
Flexbox includes a whole set of properties that work with items. Some of that properties can be set on the parent element “flex container”, and some of them – on the children “flex items”.
Here we face two axes: the main axis and a transverse axis. Items are placed relative to them. Using different short command we can change the position, align, and the size of items inside the container.
Flexbox is quite useful technology and solves a lot of tasks easily when you need to set different element positions on the various screen resolutions. Your layout will look great after applying just a few properties. So, we highly recommend you to try Flexbox. It has helped us already on several projects. It’s a good and interesting tool that will make your layout processes more adventurous.
